November 2013. Large place down by the port, large beer list from New Zealand and from around the world. Our visit was in the afternoon and it was very quiet. Did not try the food but it was available.

Even with the short list of taps and a long list of bottles I was struggling to find something. A lot of international imports and few exotic / new / exciting NZ breweries to find after three weeks traveling across the country. I ended up taking a Dr Hops World Pale Ale, a contract brew made at Invercargill... which was buttery and sour. I sat on the swanky rooftop patio across from a bachelorette party.

This is a large pub right across from the port, in a very characterful building that looks like itís morphed quite a bit over the years. The choice of taps was OK, but the bottle list was better. Staff were friendly and efficient, interestingly enough one guy was a transplant from Dublin.

Good location. Very pubby feeling, pretty loud. Food was just about acceptable. not great. Very good selection of New Zealand beers. Even so, slightly disappointed.

Great location on the water. Super quiet even for a Monday night; we were the only punters. 10 beers on at around $9 to $10 a pint. Nothing too crazy, rather solid offerings from Emersons, Epic and Macs. Good bottle list of about 130 complete with detailed tasting notes - a high touch.

Bar is in a great location along the docks in downtown Auckland. They have a good selection of beers on tap. The bartenders are friendly and quite knowledgeable about what they serve. They also have a large selection of bottle beers to choose from. The prices a bit high but typical for NZ. They also have decent though limited pub grub menu to order from. There is an upstairs patio to enjoy when the weather is cooperative. Best bar I found in downtown Auckland.

Excellent main road location with massive range of bottles from both NZ and further afield. Happy to find the Epicurean fig & coffee stout here. The bar staff know their stuff and are friendly. Food menu looks good value but none sampled on this visit. Plenty of seating and upstairs balcony for those warmer days.

I wasnít too fussed with BoQ. The pub is large and impersonal, and feels like any modern pub situated in *insert city name here*. The bottle list is extensive yet pricey (no fault of their own, as beer is generally on the higher end price wise in NZ), the taps are shockingly dull. I visited a few times and on each occasion was more than happy to leave after one beer. I really wanted (and tried) to like BoQ but just fell short on my expectations.

Cosey and relative large pub in the city centre. They have some good taps ( a few duoll ones) and a better than good bottle selection. Friendly staff, know what they are selling. Didnít try their food. This is definately one of the should visit places in Auckland.

Decent selection. This place would only be slightly above average in a better beer location, but Auckland is apparently the craft beer desert. So this is the oasis.
